from the star of the obama family, michelle obama. you know, this is just like a relay and you start off with the fastest person. so i'm going to be at home and i'm going to be watching it with our girls. and i am going to try not to let them see their daddy cry. because when michelle starts talking, i start getting all misty. >> let's go to our white house correspondent brianna keilar. she's downstairs here in the convention at the time warner cable. what else do we expect the first lady to say tonight? >> wolf, we're really expecting her to stay somewhat on message when it comes to what president obama's campaign is all about. that he's making decisions putting the middle class first. but she's going to be doing it. a source close to her tells me from a very personal place. she'll obviously talk about herself is the person who knows him best, around him at very pivotal moments and she'll talk about how she's seen him make difficult decisions, whether it be health care reform or over the auto bailout. and that she has seen him make these decisions putting the middle class first. tha
obama best will make the case for a second term. this is michelle obama's night on the stage. we have our campaign 2012 team covering it. first we'll go to norah o'donnell, cohost of cbs this morning. >> scott, you know, if mitt romney was trying to make the case that president obama has failed to lead, first lady michelle obama tonight will argue that president obama is the only one who understands the struggles of middle class america. i spoke with several advisors to the obama campaign today who described this as a very personal speech. the first lady will talk about the values and experiences that drive the president every day in the oval office. she's going to remind viewers of her husband's personal story, growing up with a single mom, being raised by a working grandmother. we told there will be personal anecdotes about their marriage. the first lady will brag about the president in a way that only a spouse can do. she'll tout a number of accomplishments including a bill that made it easier for women to sue employers who discriminate against them in the work, making college more
years ago. also speaking tonight, first lady michelle obama. her job, reach out to women voters of both parties. cnn's edlavendera has a closer look. but, first, dana bash, what are the main priorities that democrats will be pushing tonight? >> reporter: well, democratic officials say the main priority is to remind people that this just isn't just about whether or not they should fire or hire again president obama. it's that it's going to be a choice. and this is really if you talk to any strategist of any party kind of the way you run an incumbent's re-election campaign. that it is a choice between the president and mitt romney. so they'll try to what they say is crystallize that choice between the two men. and they're also going to try to emphasize the fact that as president obama has been doing for months that they believe that the democratic party is the party for the middle class. and also talk about, they say, the accomplishments that they feel that the president hasn't gotten enough credit for, bailing out the auto industry. they believe the health care bill. they'll talk about t
to be done. >> tonight we heard from the star of the obama family. first lady michelle obama. this hour we will be showing you the big moments, the first speeches and we begin with the first lady. take a look. serving as your first lady is an honor and a privilege. but back when we first came together four years ago, i still had concerns about this journey we'd begun. while i believed deeply in my husband's vision for this country and i was certain he would make an extraordinary president, like any mother, i was worried about what it would mean for our girls if he got that chance. how would we keep them grounded under the glare of the national spotlight. how would they feel being uprooted from their school, their friends and the only home they had ever known. our life before moving to washington was filled with simple joys. saturdays at soccer games, sundays at grand's house and a date night was either dinner or a movie because as an exhausted mom, i couldn't stay awake for both. and the truth is, i loved the life we had built for our girls. and i deeply love the man i had built that life
callum. good morning to you. good morning everybody at home. first lady michelle obama headlines the democratic national convention last night. it was a big night for her. she stood in front of a crowd of faithfuls and basically said that the president needs another four years to finish the job. >> i see the concern in his eyes and i hear the determination in his voice as he tells me, you won't believe what these folks are going through, michelle. it's not right. we've got to keep working to fix this. we have so much more to do. [cheers and applause] [shouting]. bill: so already now we have reaction from the romney team saying in part, quote on the first night of president obama's convention not a single speaker uttered the words americans are better off now than they were four years ago. our country deserves real solutions an a plan to turn our economy around, end quote. bob cusack, managing editor of "the hill." let's get to romney's comment first. the speech last night, how did it play? >> bill i was in the arena. it played very well. brought down the house t was genuine. at the same time ve

scarlet particularly in the wake of the michelle obama and bill clinton speeches, which are loading up the artillery to blast away. >>shepard: republicans have put out a video in response to president clinton speech last night. >>carl: they did. it will be a t ad, and there will be a lot of them. romney has become the nominee officially he can spend the money he raised for the general election, tens of millions. he has more than $185 million in the bank. that can be spent on ads and that police begins tomorrow. a lost new commercials running about key battleground states and national purchases on national television. this one tries to attack the president's integrity using bill clinton's doubts about it back in the 2008 campaign when he claimed to be one of the first democrats to oppose the iraq war. watch. >> he is a good soldier helping his party's president but what did bill clinton say about president obama in 2008? >> give me a break. whole thing is the biggest fairy tale i've ever seen. >> that quote caused quite a stir between hillary clinton and obama saying that chin tons were
. it sounds a little bit like michelle obama's speech when she tried to link policy and the person. so this is also a guy joe biden, the vice president who's beenn on some of these decisions, he had a famous phrase which i guess we can't repeat on television to describe when health care passed. what's interesting about this through the prism of joe biden is this is a man who has not ruled out a 2016 run. so a lot will be looked at in this speech. this has been a man who's been quite loyal to president obama, done him a lot of go ahead. he has gone off the reservation as we say a couple of times. but he has done what they've asked of him. and, you know, the question is what happens next? over the next four years. we saw the powerful speech from bill clinton. and of course if you talked to folks out here after bill clinton last night, who do they all want to ask about? hillary clinton. it sets up a really interesting dynamic of a sitting vice president who's been very loyal to this president and of course hillary clinton who said she doesn't want to run. but certainly joe biden has said
and first lady michelle obama prime time speeches got rave reviews, the platform fight and hate-filled rhetoric from a few delegates have been a problem. three prominent democrats from different states had to apologize for separate interviews they compared republican and paul ryan to nazis and the chairman of the paul beach county democrat mark allen seigel said he was sorry after he said this in an interview with the "patriot update." >> the worst possible ally of the jewish state is the fundamental christians who want crews to die and concert and bring on the second coming. it's a full friendship. >> he has take an leigh of absence but some want his resignation now. now that he is officially the nominee can spend $150 he put in the bank for the general election. now he can begin to spend it and massive ad lift tomorrow for what amounts to the final sprint on the air and on the ground to election day. >> bret: carl come ron with governor romney. thank you. secret service is looking in the case of democratic dill gait who said she -- delegate who said she would like to kill mitt
. megyn: simon, michelle obama told us that barack obama doesn't think of us as us and them, yet last night elizabeth warren talks about how oil companies are bad, billionaires aren't great, wall street ceos act like we should thank them. isn't that divisive language? all wall street ceos are bad, billionaires are paying lower tax rates than their secretaries and oil companies, i mean, isn't that the kind of division that michelle obama was trying to say the president doesn't do? >> i don't think there's anything that elizabeth warren said last night that was untrue, and i think that part of what the -- it's a little loud in here, i'm doing my best -- [laughter] i love that video, by the way, megyn, that was terrific before we came on. i think what elizabeth warren was trying to say last night, and i think what the democrats are saying this week is we just have a different vision for how the economy should work than the republicans. we believe that we're all in this together, that people should pay their fair share, we believe that the government has to have the needed resources to in

the country. i thought this was a very well orchestrated convention with michelle obama giving us more insight into barack obama the man. followed by bill clinton talking about the obama record on the economy and trying to bring people together. and then teeing it up for president obama to talk about what's next. and i thought that was very powerful. >> but you know, mo, the first lady did do a great job in her speech. bill clinton did an amazing job as well. the criticism of the president whilhe set certain goals and said this is how many js i want to create, this is what wae concerned,he environment is concerned, he didn't go into specifics and lay out how he's going to achieve those goals, mo. thatas folks. and th were disappointed he didn't use that venue to do it. >> well, look, ts speech was really the first stop in the general election campaign. and this -- i don't believe -- i know there's a lot of people wondering what kind of bounce either side is going to get. i don't believe there is going to be much bounce for either side because i believe this is going to be a continuous conversa

tonight. i've got to you if tonight is essentially afterglow from michelle obama's speech or is there a separate second night agenda for the democrats here leading up to the bill clinton speech? >> rachel, it looked for awhile there there were two versions of the democratic party. there was the clinton version and the barack obama version. that was a wrong perception a lot of us had. there are, in fact, two complimentary parts to the democratic party. the clinton part and the obama part. when they are together, it is a robust political party. when they are separated by division or bad feeling, they are not a strong political party. the clinton case has to come back for obama to win. it looks like it's coming back starting tonight. >> chris, are there any substantive differences between those two parts of the party you're talking about? any differences between clinton and obama that either need to be resolved or glossed over in order to make this sort of remarriage tonight work for the president? >> i don't know if it comes down to policy, but it certainly comes down to pol
for barack obama. some of the rather key ones is because he chose michelle as his wife. >> that was very sensible i think, yes. no, i think that she is a perfect partner for him. she is very strong. she's sort of balances, healthy, and practical firmness with gentleness and nurturing and she's a terrific mother and that is enormously important. >> you know barack better than most people. what will he be feeling? a lot of pressure? does he get nervous? >> i don't think he's nervous. i think he's very prepared. i think the speech is going to be great. and i think, you know, he's probably stretching his long limbs and excited to address the crowd. >> better than bill clinton's? that's the key question. >> i think he'll be different. everyone serves their purpose. michelle was about storytelling. about helping us to kind of frame the campaign issues and deeply, you know, loving intimate ways and bill clinton was about gaining perspective. on the last four years. and i think my brother is going to be about looking ahead. >> i think the crowd rather liked what you've just been saying. it's all
remain the hope of the earth. >> first lady michelle obama and mitt romney were campaigning today in virginia. and with only 54 days until the election, we have a new nbc/"wall street journal"/marist poll of that state and two other crucial battleground states, florida and ohio. joining me now to take us through the numbers is nbc political director and host of nbc's "daily rundown," chuck todd. what do we have to know about this poll? >> part of me wants to call these states the iron triangle of the battleground, if you will. it feels like all of the ways to 270 all go through these three states first. but let me start in virginia. this is where the president is sitting at a five-point lead. 49-44. ohio, his lead is a couple of points higher, 53 to 43. florida, on identical, 49-44, to what it is in virginia. all of these three states have the president sitting at 49 or 50. all of them have his job approval sitting at 49 or 50. and all of them for the first time since we've been polling in these swing states have the right track/wrong track above 40%. that's the first time we've s

. i think the president and his family have already -- there they go. president obama and michelle obama boarding the plane taking off for portsmouth, new hampshire where of course president obama will hit the campaign trail. that is where dan lothian is already waiting for the president to arrive. so i'm sure the white house has already put out a statement on this jobs report. what's it saying? >> this is not the kind of numbers that would really put wind in the sails of the president as he bounces out of the democratic national convention. i've heard from two officials who tell me the president will in fact address the jobs numbers during his first stop here post the dnc convention here in new hampshire. so he will be addressing those job numbers. we'll be listening for what he has to say. we heard from the president's economic adviser who said in a statement in part, quote, while there is more work, there remains to be done, today's employment report provides further evidence that the u.s. economy is continuing to recover from the worst downturn since the great depression going
had a great speech and the night before, michelle obama. if you were listening what i call a fact challenged listener, switching between honey boo-boo and barack obama gee, that was a great speech. it was like a helium balloon. it was filled with a lot of lighter than reality air that made you float but there wasn't anything in the balloon. he was giving a whole litany of things he was going to do, if you couldn't do it now, why couldn't you do it on last four years. it was empty. people on the left were critiquing it that way. heather: not a lot of facts to back up a lot of language to talk about moving forward. >> to reach out and say i will create a million manufacturing jobs? really? go ahead. pull a rabbit out of your head. make mosquitoes where they don't bite. make it where a woman with a size 11-foot gets to wear a size five shoe. let's go ahead and do all the great things. but that is the problem with the speech last night. he didn't say, here's where we are, here's how we got there but here's how we're going to fix it and by the way i didn't do this way before because i
, the first lady, michelle obama, perhaps the president's secret weapon, making, what, 11 visits to north carolina since 2009? talk about mrs. obama's appeal there. >> well, she has stressed military families and helping them and, of course, north carolina has a very strong military presence with fort bragg and camp lejeune, the marine base. so military issues are very important. it's a way -- she's much more popular than her husband is here, and it's a way to portray herself and to portray, sell the obama administration in a very nonpartisan way because it has broad support, it goes across party lines, of course. arthel: and then, rob, you mentioned that 2008 election. of course, the obama/biden ticket getting 49.70% of the votes there, the mccain/palin ticket, 9.48. so close -- 39.48. so close. so i ask you, what is it about the politics of north carolina that makes it such an enigma? >> well, there's a couple things going on here. first of all, it's a upper-tier southern state, it's much more like virginia than a deep south state, so it's always been much more moderate. we've had 20 ye
-election. michelle obama did as bill clinton and former michigan governor, jennifer granholm. this president is using socialist euphemisms, fair share, fair shot, dividing america, not using hope and change rhetoric he was so powerful for using four years before and able to get elected by such a wide march begin then. this is frustrating true believers the dowds of the left really are. whatever they may have felt four years ago they have been backing this president up every turn. >> she was never a true wleefr. martha: let me interject here. in the ericson piece written by one of his reporters at red state he talks about whether or not the president is relevant. goes to issues showing up in this maureen dowd piece which is whether or not he was one making the change that he was seeking. and when you look at bob woodward's book it gives a couple of examples that time nancy pelosi was talking to him about the budget. according to woodward's reporting she put the president on mute so that the people in the room could continue their conversation while he was espousing something. she says that is not true
pictures were published of the wife of president obama. i think michelle obama would take a different view about pictures of her topless than she might about someone on a beach in miami. i think that's the key difference. >> well, some might argue and probably very few, but some might argue that even if you're in a private home, is it ever wise to go outside of that home and take your top off? >> i don't think anyone would disagree with that. i have worked for celebrity clients for over 20 years. if any celebrity client came to me and asked me whether it was ever wise to take their top off in a public place anywhere, i would say absolutely not. so i think kate, the duchess of cambridge was unwise to do that. i think, however, that the punishment is inappropriate. it does not seem to me that justifies a worldwide set of pictures on the basis of and moments in discretion where she thought she was safe and where she thought she was private. >> well, it just comes on the heels of the prince harry scandal and the nude pictures taken of him in a private hotel room. >> well, i think this is absol
